West Side Story

The national tour of West Side Story’s 2009 Broadway revival opened at the Academy of Music on Wednesday in a show full of terrific dancing and song, which  runs through April 8.

A show with such strong similarity to the well known story of Romeo and Juliet makes this performance one that anyone will enjoy. While not identical to Romeo & Juliet, West Side Story tells a story of Maria and Tony who comes from different worlds and different "sides of the street," whose families are feuding and will never see eye to eye. This show pits an American-born gang against a Puerto Rican one.

The storyline is compelling and strong, but a good part of the show is in Spanish so if you don't have a working knowledge of Spanish some of the dialogue and songs may be lost on you, but after taking 6 years of it in school I was able to pick up most of it, but fear others who don't have this base knowledge may have been lost at times.

Another beautiful and strong performance at the Academy of Music.

To purchase tickets visit, visit the Kimmel Center box office, Broad & Spruce Sts. (open daily 10 am to 6 pm)  or at the Academy of Music box office, Broad & Locust Sts. (open during performances only) or by calling 215-790-5883 or 866-276-2947.


  1. I seriously had songs from this in my head the other day. Looks like a great production.

  2. I remember the Original West Side Story as a kid growing up, gang against gang. Like the dancing in it!

  4. I would love to be able to go see this,the movie was wonderful
